Here is a game from the X Open de Sants 2008, GM Narciso - FM Lorenzo De La Riva with full annotations and commentary:





In this game we saw black use the Benoni opening with great effect. He was able to establish a dominant Bishop on g7 which had strong influence on the long diagonal all game. Also, black was able to play the important b7-b5 pawn break through tactical means and ended up with more active minor pieces and dominant Rooks on the 2nd rank of the opponent's territory. This game is a clear example of how dangerous the Benoni game can be and how the black pieces can come alive very quickly.
